He Led You In The Wilderness

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

We often think of being in the wilderness as a place of being stuck, like being in a holding pattern. But in Deuteronomy 8, Moses tells the Israelites “You shall remember all the ways the Lord your God has led you in the wilderness.” Two key words: ‘wilderness’ and ‘led,’ or ‘He led you.’ The wilderness was not really a holding pattern or a place to get stuck in. The wilderness was the place God led them. If you feel you’re in a wilderness period in your life or your walk, don’t make the mistake of thinking you’re stuck. You’re not stuck at all. In fact, the Israelites moved more when they were in the wilderness than when they were outside it. In the wilderness, God will lead you too, even in ways you could never have known outside of it. So whether you’re in the wilderness or not, seek the Lord today, to lead you, to move you forward, to teach you, and to bring you to higher ground. He will. And you too “shall remember how the Lord led you in the wilderness.”

Today’s Mission – Today, don’t make the mistake of thinking you’re stuck. Seek the Lord to lead you forward to higher ground.

Moving On With Messiah

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In Luke 4, Messiah is ministering in Galilee, and the multitudes want Him to stay there teaching and healing. But he says, “I must preach the Kingdom of God to other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose.” Messiah is saying in effect ‘I have to move on.’ So if Messiah says, “I have to move on,” then what must you say? One of the greatest ways to grow dead in your walk is to simply stay where you are; stop journeying, stop stepping out in faith, stop moving ahead. Messiah’s always moving on, and if you’re His follower, so must you. Have you been stuck in the same rut; dwelling in the past, stuck in anger, pondering what you once had in your life but lost? The Lord’s not staying in it, and neither should you. Move on with your life. Step out in faith. If you want the continuing presence and joy of the Lord in your life, then you have to move on with the Lord. For moving on is the only way to go when you’re going with the moving on Lord.

Today’s Mission – Today, seek the Lord on where you need to move forward and then move on with Him.
